Week 3: vs Atlanta Falcons

All RB vs ATL

FBG says: Neutral matchup. The Colts finished with a flashy 167 rushing yards against the Titans last week as they very intentionally tried to establish the run with 34 rushing plays. The stat line presents an inflated view of their success, as the Colts running backs struggled for most of that game. Marlon Mack averaged just 2.6 yards per attempt on 20 carries with a long run of only 10 yards. Jordan Wilkins found a hole on a well-blocked play in the fourth quarter to get loose for a 55-yard run on his way to 82 rushing yards from five carries. This impressive performance from Wilkins may eat into Mack's snaps, but not by much as Mack still should be considered the de factor lead runner in what will be a run-heavy offense. The guards continue to play well on this top-tier offensive line for Indianapolis. Quinten Nelsen had another great game last week and should help pave the way for a bounce-back week for Marlon Mack. The Falcons have started the season about as inconsistently as possible against the run. After getting embarrassed by the Vikings running backs to the tune of 178 rushing yards and two touchdowns, this Falcons front seven puts on a show against one of the league's best offensive lines, holding Eagles running backs to just 46 rushing yards from 18 attempts. While there is a considerable gap in talent from Dalvin Cook to the likes of rookie Miles Sanders, the way this Falcons defensive line pushed around the Eagles offensive line was significantly noticeable. Grady Jarrett and Tyeler Davison were spectacular last week while Takkarist McKinley and Vic Beasley Jr also made much-improved contributions against the run. The secondary still has room for improvement against the run, as safety Ricardo Allen is not living up to expectations he set as a solid run-stopper from last season. Looking at the trenches, this should be an intriguing matchup with Grady Jarrett squaring off against talented left guard Quenton Nelson. The Colts offensive line should be able to hold its own on paper, but based on the variance displayed from the Falcons defense through two games, this matchup could go either way.

Recent Game Summaries

2019 Week 2 vs TEN (5 / 82 / 0 rush, 1 / 1 / 4 / 0 rec)

Jordan Wilkins rushed for more yards than Marlon Mack on one fourth of the carries. In fact Wilkins topped Mack's yardage total on a single run of 55 yards. Wilkins gained the edge off left tackle for a 15 yard gain showing nice burst. Wilkins got a number of nice blocks including a key block from Braden Smith to break WIlkins into the open field for a 55 yard run. Wilkins showed his speed and physicality on the play and seemed disappointed he didn't score after going out at the 4 yard line. It remains to be seen if this performance will earn Wilkins more carries but for now he is at the very least the clear back up to own if Mack gets injured.

Our View: Wilkins is healthier than Williams after battling a lower leg ailment during camp and preseason. He's probably the #3 back and direct backup to Marlon Mack in the running game.
